The saddest question on the California test, I failed:

"What is the age in the state of california is cosiderdered elderly?"

It was MY AGE!

I think stress is probably the reason most people fail. Go over your exams in the back of the book because most of the questions are related to the practice exams. You will probably do fine. Good luck!

I admit that I am a Realtor and an Attorney. But, I was nervous too, because, as an attorney, I would be very embarrassed if I failed the Real Estate Exam. So, I studied a lot. Then, I took multiple sample tests. And, I studied some more. I timed myself during the practice tests, as the test in OH is timed. I chewed a piece of gum during the exam. I concentrated on the exam questions and chewing the gum, so I forgot about my nerves. I passed the test on the first try. Good Luck!!

Your real estate class should have prepared you for the exam. It's really not that difficult. If I remember right it was a lot of common sense questions. Good luck!

Last month 1263 took the Florida real estate exam. 631 of them passed.… I have sent you a link to an article about the pass rate. In the middle of this article is a link to my Florida real estate math videos on You Tube. Watch these videos. You need to get ten out of ten on the math. You can go to "The Best of Ron Climer" and find my new article about the "Candidate Information Booklet" for real estate sales associate examination. There is a two page summary of what is on the Florida real estate exam.
If you went to one of those online nationial schools that specialize in all fifty states,you may be studying stuff that you don't need to know. The "Candidate Information Booklet" will tell you exactly what you need to be studying. If you need this book,it is free. Call Kathy at 407 822 3926. She will email you a copy.
Watch the math videos.That is free. Study non stop. Study the stuff that is on the test. That is in the "Candidate Information Booklet"

Failure is something that happens only if you allow it to happen....the number of times required to pass any exam is of little consequence and not a measure of the degree for an individual's success.

Good luck,

Hi Johnny.

Everybody gets nervous before a test, it's human nature.

If you have a review book to reference before the test, go back and look at your most important highlights you marked during your course. You don't have to remember everything in the course, only the highlighted laws and most important rules and regs of what you've learned.

What type of questions do they ask on the exam? Uhhhmmm......everything you just learned, but mostly the highlighted materials. If you took the course online, then I would say everything they reviewed at the end of each chapter.

Make sure you get there early with a good cup of strong coffee. Review everything you can in your book between the time you park and the time you enter the building for the test. Think positive.

Are you taking the class online or in a real classroom?
If there are other students, and you're nervous, why not form a study group with a few of them?

Also - it's been like a hundred years since I took the exam - but I do recall we had a practice exam in the class to get us ready for the state exam..........also had a class exam we had to the time we were done with all that testing, we were all prepped and ready for the state exam!

If you're taking the course online - you can probably find study hints to help you online, too.

I am sure you'll do fine.........

Best wishes!

Do you really think agents out there are going to tell you online that they failed the state exam the first time around. It's not that difficult as long as you know the material like any other exam. Think positively. I wish you well.

You should think positively AND you should study and study hard! You will NOT fail! You will NOT fail! You will NOT fail! Now go study!
